Drone beer delivery during #SnowVember (video)

On November 18th 2014 Buffalo, NY experienced a record lake-effect snowfall. Citizens were stranded in their homes and cars. Some without food, water, or the necessary adult beverages. In an attempt to help these people, we took it upon ourselves to try a new delivery method.*

Disclaimer: We don’t really deliver beer to people via drones.

This is the start of something special.
This is craft beer.

True to its namesake. True to itself. True to you, the drinker. No additives. No big expensive billboard campaign. No added colours. No fakery. Just. Lager.

Austin Beerworks are selling the 99-Pack of beer! — August 29, 2014

Austin Beerworks are selling the 99-Pack of beer!

Austin Beerworks – Peacemaker Anytime Ale from Beef and Pie Productions on Vimeo.

Campaign with Helms Workshop to reintroduce Austin Beerworks Peacemaker, renaming it “Anytime Ale.” The term clarifies when the brew is best enjoyed: specifically, any time. With a beer that’s great at any moment, you should always keep a few on hand— so a multi-pack made sense. But how many?

Hoppy (2014)

Hoppy is a short stop-motion animated movie originated from our love for good beer. As for the idea, we wanted to display the proces of making beer in a bit peculiar way. Hope you enjoy it!

Beggining of a new great show about craft breweries?

In episode 1 of Local Brew, Matt heads to Lewiston, Maine, to visit Baxter Brewing Company. There he meets the owner, Luke Livingston, to talk about craft beer, the mill and his journey from beer fanatic to brewery owner. Then Matt rolls up his sleeves and helps Baxter’s head brewer Ben Low make a batch of Stowaway I.P.A. After that it’s off to the canning line where Matt gets a lesson is how to can beer and almost smashes his face. Then Luke and Matt head to the tasting room to sample some of Baxter’s fine craft beers, including their then un-released, un-tested summer beer, Celsius Summer Ale. After the tasting is done, Matt heads to one of Lewiston’s favorite watering holes, DaVinci’s Eatery, to talk beer with the people who it best – the locals. There he meets some of Lewiston’s finest, hangs out with the crew of Baxter Brewing, steals a nibble of Luke’s famous Pamola Pale Ale mussels! Yes it’s a about a local micro-brewery, local people, and great craft beer in this episode of Local Brew!

Craft Beer – A Hopumentary — April 11, 2014

Craft Beer – A Hopumentary

For most of the 20th century, beer was dominated by large-scale breweries like Anheuser-Busch, Miller and Coors. By the early 80’s, through industry consolidation there were little more than 100 breweries left in the US. The result was an entirely American style of beer, one that had been diluted, homogenized and mass produced. In this environment, American beer lovers seeking quality and variety began brewing their own with a few intrepid pioneers eventually going commercial. With this, a new movement in American brewing began, one of smaller producers focusing on quality over quantity. This is a story of Craft Beer.
